Headshot - Clara Kallenius

Clara Kallenius

Started her acting career as a child in productions such as Annie, Sound of Music, 10 Things I hate about you, Pettson & Findus (Junibacken) as well as the Swedish TV show Lördagsakuten. She performed at the Royal China Teatern in Stockholm and went on national tour with the successful production Pippi Longstocking starring Pernilla Wahlgren, directed by Staffan Götestam. She later performed as Pippi on the promo tour of Pippi the Movie. She is a graduate from the William Esper Studio (Masterclass and 2-year intensive program) as well as NYFA. We have seen her in the NY scene playing leading roles in Fertile, one of the winning plays at the Long Island Theatre Collective Film Festival, and in the American premiere of “5BOYS”, the award winning play by Simona Semenic. On screen we have seen her in Dispute, Stairs, Vitt Porslin among others. She recently booked a leading role in “Eufemier”, a London film production and you will soon see her in Swedish films such as “Jag älskar dig”, a love comedy by award winning film director Johan Brisinger, and on TV in the new series “Midnightsun” by Måns Mårlind and Björn Stein, the award winning writer and director duo of the international acclaimed TV series “Bron/Broen”.
